RBR is adding a virtual edition to all of its upcoming physical conferences to give certainty to delegates and event partners and ensure that opportunities for learning and networking are not missed.
RBR has announced a series of virtual events that will complement its existing physical conferences line-up in 2020. Having initially pushed back its physical events to the end of Q4, to maximise the chance of them going ahead, the virtual conferences have been added to guarantee this will be the case. A full virtual conference and expo will be run for each event and allow a greater number of international banks, fintechs and industry partners to participate than would have been the case, even without restrictions.
While its virtual events offer unique benefits and opportunities, RBR is keen to continue with its physical events if at all possible. RBR’s Managing Director, Dominic Hirsch, commented: “RBR continues to be passionate about the value of physical conferences and our event partners certainly echo this sentiment. Bringing key industry stakeholders together to share knowledge is core to our offering, and you cannot beat face-to-face interaction. A dual physical-virtual strategy leverages the strengths of each model and reduces risks for everybody involved”.
For the physical conferences, RBR is working closely with its venue partners to monitor the social distancing situation and ensure that appropriate measures are put in place.
At the heart of all of RBR’s conferences are international speaker programmes comprising bank case studies and expert thought leadership sessions. Keynotes across the events include Siân John MBE (Microsoft) on the evolving cybersecurity landscape, Brian Parker (Barclays) on customer-obsessed transformation, Scott Abrahams (Mastercard) on financial inclusion, and Kevin Lane (Lloyds Banking Group) on transforming branches securely.
The virtual events will replicate the physical event agendas, meaning anyone who is unable to travel to London can still take advantage of the learning and networking opportunities. As with the physical events, the online series will also have an interactive exhibition and provide opportunities for questions and discussion.
